Fountain Tire has once again teamed up with the Western Hockey League (WHL) and Ontario Hockey League (OHL) to honour local “difference makers.”
Fountain Tire 3 Stars recognizes special people in 21 cities across Canada who go above and beyond to make their communities a better place.
Canadians can nominate their local heroes until Nov. 30, 2019.
“We’re adding to the roster of everyday citizens who support and inspire those around them,” says Denise Gohl-Eacrett, director of brand and customer experience at Fountain Tire. “We’re asking Canadians to help us find people whose actions – big or small – make a difference in their communities.”
Fountain Tire 3 Stars was created to recognize community members for their volunteerism, humanitarianism and generosity. Like the three stars awarded to players at the end of a hockey game, Fountain Tire—along with the WHL and OHL—seeks to recognize local heroes in a similar way.
Last year, Fountain Tire celebrated a broad range of difference makers including teachers, firefighters, fundraisers, hockey parents and even a city bus driver.
This fall, members of the public are invited to nominate their community stars at FountainTire3Stars.com.
“In hockey, we award 3 Stars to the top three players who had outstanding performances on the ice,” comments OHL Commissioner David Branch. “Fountain Tire 3 Stars takes that concept out of the arena and into the community, to recognize individuals who make an impact, behind the scenes, every day.”
Three winners will be selected from each participating WHL and OHL city, on the basis of nominees giving back to their community in a meaningful way. Winners will receive a WHL/OHL 3 Star Experience, including four hockey tickets, a $250 Fountain Tire gift certificate and a $200 gift certificate for the local team store. They will also be recognized in a ceremony at a local game later in the season.
“The Fountain Tire philosophy is ‘We’re on this road together,’ a sentiment that drives our actions and customer interactions each day,” says Gohl-Eacrett. “From our corporate office in Edmonton to our locally-owned stores, we believe it is important to support local communities. We bring this to life through our sponsorships of the WHL and OHL, and by supporting the local heroes that help our communities thrive.”
